De’ Cowboy Cafe, Danga Bay

Posted in banana leaf rice,coffee,food,Johor Bahru,malaysia by chrisau on April 28, 2009

Been a while since I’ve been to Danga Bay and notice it’s so different now. The Festive Mall Street was just opened when I last went there but now it’s bustling with shops and kiosks. And, some of the shops have closed or either moved, like the Clark Hatch fitness centre, which had moved to a shophouse nearby.

Well, since my family and I were checking out makan places for dinner, we stumbled upon this cafe and thought it’s a good idea to try it out. Opened by a local chinese owner with cooks from vietnam as well as local malays, they do offered quite lot of varieties, not forgetting there’s a lot of folks patronising it too.


Still going ga ga over rendang stuff, I order a banana leaf rice with chicken rendang (gravy). The rendang is milky and it’s very delicious, one of the best rendang I’ve ever tried. You can taste a thick aroma of coconut milk. πŸ™‚ This cost RM4.90. I think it’s fair enough.


Their belacan is superb!!


And, you’ll be surprised viet coffees are served here and that’s how I gotta know that a Viet cook is working here. It’s cheap too, cost RM2.50.


De’ Cowboy cafe is located at – Unit 25, Festive Street Mall, Danga Bay.

    hi chrisau, what do you call that meal with rice in your post? looks spicy and yummy ^_^

    I myself is a food lover and I love to watch TV shows like “NO RESERVATIONS” By Anthony Bourdain,
    “BIZARRE FOODS” by Andrew Zimmerman and “MAN VS. FOOD” Adam Richman here in US. I can’t wait to see your place (Malaysia) on television with Anthony B. and Andrew Z. They travel the world and try different foods in each country … Both of them went to the Philipines before. I love watching tv shows related to foods and i like your site too ^_^

    Gosh! I miss eating rice. The Last time I ate rice was last week. I am the only person that eat rice here. They always have mash potato or rolls, I am not used too. Seeing this, reminds me to go to the grocery now and buy my rice. Thanks for sharing my friend.
